Couple small bug fixes and a new slice template feature to help when adding new slices. We're hoping to add proper slice interpolation soon but this should help in the meantime. When you're happy with the new slice just save and reload to get rid of the slice templates.
The first round of license expirations are hitting and confusing a lot of customers. This release handles "stale" licenses more gracefully and prompts for license to be refreshed.
If you're wondering why the license needs to be refreshed here's the deal:
All licenses are only good for one month (max) at a time. They need to be refreshed each month to pick up the extended expiration (assuming subscription is in good standing) and any new features we've added. If you're on a free trial, you'll automatically pick up the next month.
Fixes issue for Mac users when opening files from Finder.
BRX files now use a red bird for the file icon. Makes it way easier to identify brx from brd. OS X caches these things so you'll need to restart your computer to pick up the changes.
Looking into how we can do the same for you. Not so simple with the way the exe is built.
You owe Chilli a beer for this one!
Toolpath previews are good to go for Heavyweights and Factories. This release also includes minor usability fixes for Mac users.
Heavyweights and Factories:
Only affects windows users. Addresses security issues that made it hard to run the software in Windows 7 and 8.
Add point rolling for all panels. Press the D key to cycle clockwise through the blue points, A to cycle counterclockwise. Press S or W to cycle within a set (red/yellow/blue).
Big thanks to Brad Buckle for the suggestion.

A number of recent Java updates have done their best to destroy this release. We put a lot of time into Aku Shaper 2.0 addressing the issues and adding a number of improvements.
We'll try to keep this version running as long as possible but we are no longer actively supporting it. If you're running into problems, try downgrading to Java 6.
Please subscribe to the new version instead to make sure you always have access to the latest improvements.
